Chris Marker’s mythical masterpiece released for the first time in 30 years.Thirteen Greek words deciphered by artists and intellectuals from different countries in a film in thirteen episodes. The Owl's Legacy was conceived as a film in 13 episodes about the influence of Greek culture in our society. 

On the model of the ancient banquet, men (and some women) drink wine by exchanging ideas, filmed by Marker in four places: Paris, Tbilisi, Athens and Berkeley. The director also filmed a series of individual interviews, and used a variety of materials to illustrate his subject (literary and philosophical texts, images, music, film and video clips, filmed news ...).
